Introducing Technology-Driven Thematic Investing

Motif combines data science and automation to create an innovative new model of thematic investing

Why Thematic Investing Matters

Thematic investing is the art of identifying long-term transformative changes around the world and understanding how they impact the financial markets. Whether it is the inevitable impact of an aging population or the growing ubiquity of artificial intelligence—these seismic changes are going to drive disproportionate growth in the economy. This creates real opportunity for long-term investors. Motif is turning the art of thematic investing into a science through the use of cutting-edge technologies.


Creating Value Through Technology

Motif applies a rigorous, technology-driven approach to thematic investing. We sift through terabytes of data to uncover important trends driving the economy and identify companies with exposure to these trends. We then use automation to turn these dynamic models into financial products for both individual and professional investors.
